A Storm Named "Yolanda"
Engage your students with a fictional story, based on events that occurred before, during and after Super Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda) made landfall in Tacloban City, The Philippines.

Personal choices are part of everyday life. Whether choosing what to wear in the morning, what to have for lunch, or which college to attend, our days are filled with decisions. Using examples related to cardiovascular health, the Scientific Decision-making unit helps high school and middle school students learn how to make evidence-based decisions.
